Since 2012, our organization works under the form of associate management, which foresees the joint participation of civil society organizations and the Government of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, with the EARLY CHILDHOOD CENTER PROGRAM of the direction of strengthening of the civil society.
Under this framework, we inaugurated our first Early Childhood Center, “GESTITOS,” located in the neighborhood of Mataderos, in conformity with the guiding principals of the Convention of the Rights of the Child, the National Constitution, the Constitution of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, Law No. 26,061, Law No. 26,233, and Law No. 114.
The EARLY CHILDHOOD CENTERS, promoted by the Government of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, aim to “ensure the growth and healthy development of children from 45 days to 4 years of age in situations of social vulnerability in the City of Buenos Aires, in pursuit of helping the promotion and protection of their rights.”
One year later, we inaugurated the second Early Childhood Center, “CASITAS,” in the neighborhood of Constitución. In January of 2017, the largest of our Early Childhood Centers, “IRQICHAY,” opened under the same legal framework and in compliance with the general objectives of the Early Childhood Center program that aims to:
All Early Childhood Centers adhere to the program rules, working full-time (8 hours) and providing comprehensive care for boys and girls from 45 days to 3 years of age through the following benefits:
